** A similar occasion occurs later on in the series, except instead Michael notes that the contact, Seymour was using hollowpoints. Seymour expresses surprise that Michael could tell just by looking at it, allowing Michael an opportunity to wrestle the gun away again. Seymour acknowledges that Michael is indeed a {{Badass}}. Then again, Seymour's an idiot.

* Being DangerouslyGenreSavvy, the Evronians from ''ComicBook/PaperinikNewAdventures'' equip all their weapons with DNA locks that prevent them from being used by non-Evronians (if they don't it means the weapons are being given to alien collaborators), with generals having sidearms that fire only when used by their owners. Paperinik finds out when, on an Evronian starship, he takes an Evronian general hostage and tells him to have his troops stand down only for the general to reveal the DNA lock.

* In [[Literature/VorkosiganSaga Captain Vorpatril's Alliance]], Ivan Vorpatril jumps a slaver who is pointing a stunner-beam at him. Ivan later reveals that the stunner in question was his, and was keyed to his own finger-prints, meaning that no one else could make it work.

* There is a memorable scene in NealStephenson's ''Literature/{{Reamde}}'' where Zula jams her finger between the hammer and firing pin of [[spoiler:[[BigBad Abdallah Jones']] pistol, allowing Csongor to shoot Jones without worrying about [[HumanShield Zula's safety.]]]]
* DanBrown's ''Literature/DeceptionPoint'' sees a protagonist acquire a machine gun from the [[spoiler: assassins out to kill him, after incapacitating two of them, and uses it to hold the NRO's Director at gunpoint.]] The third assassin then calmly walks into his line of fire with his own weapon and states that he's out of ammunition.

* The ''ComicBook/{{Preacher}}'' example pictured above, though the art style omits the manual safety on his 1911, but does show the hammer as down, so it wouldn't fire anyway.

* In the Franchise/StarWars ExtendedUniverse book ''Tales from Mos Eisley Cantina'', Momaw Nadon lures an Imperial captain into an alley and threatens to kill him. The captain laughs ruthlessly and says, "You can't kill me with a blaster set to Stun." Momaw knows he set the blaster to Kill, but fears he may have knocked the setting aside, and looks. Of course, it ''is'' set on Kill, but he has lost his chance, and the captain shoots him. (Luckily, his blaster ''is'' set on Stun.)
